Hey! Been doing lawncare part time since I was thirteen. Up to 3 days a week of business. Got a couple Xmarks (one rider and one walkbehind) a stander and 2 weedeaters and a blower. (all stihl) Working on a business plan. The question I have for anyone and everyone on here: Do you have any links or resources in which I can find current market trends for my business plan? News articles or money articles talking about the demand for lawncare and its current trend? Basically I want to get a good analysis on the outside enviroment - and I think anyone that has a current business plan wouldn't mind updating this aspect of it as well. So lets band together and see what we can come up with. Anything will do - any studies, market research - ect... The only thing I have come up with is TruGreen reporting another 5% increase... lol... But I just started looking. Feel free to ask any questions if you dont understand what I'm looking for. Thanks!
